Tritium, bp ink multi-year EV chargers supply and services contract
Brisbane-based electric vehicle charging company Tritium has announced that it has entered into a multi-year contract with bp to supply EV chargers and services to its global network.
The first order under the agreement will see Tritium, a global developer and manufacturer of direct current fast chargers for EVs, supply the UK, Australia, and New Zealand with just under 1000 chargers.
Richard Bartlett, Senior Vice President at bp pulse, stated he is delighted with the new global agreement with Tritium.
"It will help bp pulse deliver its mission to provide fast, reliable charging for EV drivers and to accelerate the roll-out of the charging infrastructure needed as the world transitions to decarbonise road transport."
Jane Hunter, CEO of Tritium, said they're thrilled to be working with bp to create greater global access to fast charging in support of their mission to become a net-zero company by 2050.
"The electrification of transportation is entering an incredible era when major companies like bp are providing critical support to transition the world to cleaner more reliable transportation."
Last month, bp announced its plans to invest roughly AUD$1.7 billion in electric vehicle charging throughout the UK.
The investment aims to triple the number of charging points in the UK network, accelerate the rollout of 300kw and 150kw ultra-fast charging networks, and upgrade the current charging technology.
"This £1 billion investment is vital to provide the charging infrastructure the UK needs. We're investing to build a world-class network. This investment allows us to deliver more. More high-speed charging in dedicated hubs and on existing fuel and convenience sites. More home charging services. And crucial enhancements to our digital technology that will make charging fast, easy, and reliable," said Bartlett.
